As Aired on January 2, 2014
Recipe Courtesy Chef Bryan Woolley
3 tablespoons whole-grain or Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika or ground chipotle pepper (see Cook's Tips)
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 4-ounce skinless center-cut wild-caught salmon fillets (see Cook's Tips)
Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with foil and coat with cooking spray.
Combine mustard, maple syrup, paprika (or chipotle), pepper and salt in a small bowl. Place salmon fillets on the prepared baking sheet. Spread the mustard mixture evenly on the salmon. Roast until just cooked through, 8 to 12 minutes.
Smoked paprika is made from smoke-dried red peppers and adds earthy, smoky flavor. Look for different types of paprika at some large supermarkets or at tienda.com or penzeys.com.
Chipotle peppers are dried, smoked jalapeño peppers. Ground chipotle chile pepper can be found in the spice section of most supermarkets or online at penzeys.com.
